ONE37pm’s Editor’s Pick

While the Texas Bobcats boast the number one seed, we’re picking Georgia State University to come away with the Sun Belt Crown this season. State is on a hot seven-game win streak that dates back to February 5th, picking up victories against South Alabama, Coastal Carolina, Georgia Southern, Louisiana Monroe, and LA-Lafayette. GSU has the senior talents of Corey Allen, Kane Williams, Justin Roberts, and Eliel Nsoseme to lead the pack, and despite COVID issues this season, the Panthers still notched the 3rd seed. We’ve got our bets on GSU.

There’s the schedule for the Sunbelt Tournament, be sure to keep up with us as we will be continuing our coverage for the remainder of the week.
